Did Olivia Thirlby and Emile Hirsch make this so they could visit Russia on somebody else's dime?

Just dumb enough to feel like the product of intelligent grown ups who wanted to make something they'd have dug as widdle kids.

It's true mindless trash, but it's fun mindless trash... I'm not ashamed to say I would watch a sequel.

Once again it's time for the end of the world. But, "The Darkest Hour" fails to see the light and we're stuck with yet another mediocre sci-fi movie.

Screenwize

Uninspiring and insipid, this contemporary take on the zombie genre sees a group of gorgeous twenty somethings trapped in Moscow trying desperately to get away from an endless attack launched by nasty id-like blobs of energy.

So bad that Russian and American relations may break down and reignite the Cold War.

One accusation commonly levelled at films like Transformers is that they're big on budget but light on ideas. The Darkest Hour falls short on both fronts.

This mindless mess could have just as easily been set in Los Angeles or New York. Or London. Or ideally, nowhere.

The title of this teen disaster-by-numbers affair could not be more apt - as a collective omen for all those involved

It's refreshing to see someplace besides Manhattan, Tokyo or L.A. getting the destruction-from-space treatment.

Urban Cinefile

The setting in deserted Moscow is the biggest point of difference about this ho-hum end of the world scenario. Also invisible is the tension to give this apocalyptic sci-fi action thriller scares and impetus.

The most alarming moment is the revelation that there might be a sequel.

It is as though they got half way through making the film and had the budget catastrophically slashed.

SFX Magazine

In what might prove to be one of the most egregious examples of concept far outstripping execution, The Darkest Hour ends up as this year's Skyline: aliens+paper-thin screenplay=cinematic snooze.

Cool though this might seem as a post-apocalyptic fashion accessory, it's fatally ill-thought-through...

Our planet is ravaged by aliens in yet another sci-fi calamity so bad you'll be cheering on the invaders.

Invisible invaders!... Surely, then, we're in for an inspired, imaginative story and engaging, fascinating characters -- you know, to make up for the cheapness... Nope...

Very cheap and silly-looking.

Sadly lacks the stylish imagination that co-producer Timur Bekmambetov brought to his supernatural epics Night Watch and Day Watch.
